Friday Night Music in Montclair

Want to hear some live music in Montclair Center on Friday night? Here are two possibilities, and we have tickets to give away for both shows.

Outpost in the Burbs presents gold and platinum recording artist Bruce Cockburn, whose recently-released 31st album Small Source of Comfort, has been called adventurous and romantic, with songs of protest and spiritual discovery. The album, primarily acoustic, is rich in Cockburn’s characteristic blend of folk, blues, jazz and rock.

To win a pair of tickets to Cockburn’s Outpost show, be the first to tell us what nation Cockburn hails from. Post it as a comment below.

**Note that the show’s venue has been moved to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, at 67 Church St.

Nearby, at the Wellmont, four-time Grammy nominated trumpeter Chris Botti will demonstrate why he’s the largest selling American jazz instrumental artist. With four Number 1 jazz albums, Botti’s success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music. Over the past three decades, he has recorded and performed with the best in music including Frank Sinatra, Sting, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, John Mayer, Andrea Bocelli, Joshua Bell and Aerosmith’s own Steven Tyler.

Baristanet has three pairs of tickets to give away for the Wellmont show. Wanna go? Name the title of one of Botti’s recordings, either from the Verve or Columbia labels. No repeats, please. Post answers as comments below.
